EBC Brake Pads Z32/R32/R33 with Sumitomo "Nissan Calipers". Not Compatible with OEM Brembos
The EBC Brakes Bluestuff NDX race formula is an ultra high friction race pad with a friction level peaking above 0.6 under braking that will generate more G force than most, if not all pads out there. NDX is capable of street use as it bites well from cold.
The big advantage of this pad is that it is one of the world's FIRST AND ONLY out of the box pre-bedded race pads that is surface "heat seared or scorched" at the factory. This gives amazing reductions in pad bed-in time on street or track. Also, being a non-metallic aramid base, NDX reduces rotor wear and eliminates the firework display spark emitted in high speed braking by competitive semi-metallics although NDX is NOT a low dust pad. There is an amount of DUST with these pads. Disc wear is however drastically reduced and pad life enhanced. Discs wear smooth and flat without ridges.
EBC Orange Stuff 9000 Series
Developed as a full race pad with a high friction level that increases with temperature.
This material works best on light to middleweight high powered race cars where a higher fade resistance and wear life is desirable compared to Yellowstuff. Despite having an acceptable cold friction making this material street usable, the hot friction is deemed too high for ECE R90 approval and therefore this material is not road legal within Europe.
EBC Red Stuff 3000 Series
EBC Brakes Redstuff is a superb pad for premium and fast street use and for use on faster prestige cars. Made from a premium quality LOW dust compound, these pads contain NO steel fibres and any small amount of dust created will wash off easily with a sponge and water. Redstuff pads also reduce disc wear so discs and pads last longer while still delivering great performance.
Ceramic particles enhance the aramid fibre formulation used in EBC Brakes Redstuff to deliver powerful and long lasting silent braking for the discerning driver. An ideal upgrade for original pads on prestige and faster cars in urban driving, delivering great brake response and feel from first application of the brakes. Powder coated red in colour and fitted with premium quality OE style noise reduction shims to give silent braking, Redstuff is tested to ECE R90 standards and are completely street legal. NOT FOR TRACK USE – See Yellowstuff, Bluestuff or Orangestuff for track use.
EBC Yellow Stuff 4000 Series
EBC Brakes Yellowstuff compound is a high performance road pad that is also suitable for track use and works really well from cold. If you want the ultimate in high friction braking, this is the pad to choose. Brakes feel superb from first touch of the pedal and stay effective right up to race temperatures.
EBC Brakes Yellowstuff is designed for faster, higher horsepower cars where maximum stopping power is the prime requirement as well as for track use. The dust rating is less than OEM parts. Where necessary, all pads come with edge chamfers, noise reduction shims and OEM hardware. All EBC Brakes Yellowstuff pads feature the Brake-In surface coating which helps pads to seat quickly after installation.
EBC RPX Track and Race Pads
EBC Racings RP-X compound is an ultra-high performance track and race pad designed for performance vehicles driven hard on track and for dedicated race cars. RP-X has a very stable friction coefficient of 0.55 mu up to and beyond 850 C, making it an excellent performer for even the most demanding vehicle applications. RP-X also has a high friction level from cold, requiring no warmup to achieve maximum braking effect which makes this material well suited for sprint race and hill climb events. Although RP-X is not R90 homologated for use on the public roads in EU member states, the fact this material possesses excellent cold performance means RP-X can be safely used for driving to and from motorsport events where local laws permit.
EBC Racing does however emphasise that RP-X has been developed for peak on-track performance, meaning higher levels of brake dust and brake noise should be expected. RP-X has comparable disc wear to many other popular track and race materials, however RP-X disc wear is considerably greater than EBC Racings other track pad RP-1 which results in high levels of brake dust. Compared to RP-1, RP-X has a 25 per cent increase in friction coefficient across its working temperature range with a much more positive initial bite. This characteristic potentially makes RP-X more suitable on heavy or inherently under-servoed vehicles. For light-medium weight vehicles, cars with non EBC Big Brake Kits fitted, or vehicles with no ABS, the less fierce nature of EBC Racings other track material RP-1 may be preferable.
EBC RP1 Track and Race Pads
EBC Racing's RP-1 compound is an ultra-high performance track and race pad designed for high performance vehicles driven hard on track. RP-1 has a very stable friction coefficient of 0.45 mu up to and beyond 750 degrees centigrade, making it an excellent performer for even the most demanding vehicle applications.
Due to its relatively high friction coefficient, RP-1 is not Reg 90 homologated for road use within Europe and is therefore illegal for use on the public road. Unlike some other race pads on the market, RP-1 offers a usable cold friction of 0.35 mu below 100 C meaning it can be safely used as a road pad for non-European markets where Reg 90 homologation is not mandatory. At 100 C the friction gently climbs to 0.45 mu and stays there up to and beyond the designed upper working temperature range of 750 C. Read More...
RP-1 boasts good pad life but the unique characteristic of RP-1 is that it boasts exceptionally low disc wear, lower than virtually all other competitor race materials tested by EBC Racing. RP-1 has a progressive pedal feel with unrivalled modulation. RP-1 does not have the snatchy pedal feel or high levels of noise often associated with other race pads on the market. Compared to EBC Racing’s other track pad RP-X, RP-1 has a 25 percent reduction in friction coefficient across its working temperature range making RP-1 the more suitable choice for light-medium weight cars, cars with non EBC Big Brake Kits fitted, or vehicles with no ABS. For heavy or inherently under-servoed vehicles which suit a very aggressive pad, EBC Racing’s other track material RP-X may be preferable.
